The purpose of this presentation is to inspire and provide next steps for education stakeholders to take in their data journeys based on their previous experience of utilizing student data. For the novices, learning how to collect assessment data from 3rd party services like Kahoot and Google Forms, importing it into Power Bi, and manipulating the data to get more insight on students' learning. For amateurs, connecting multiple data sets together in Power Bi to create a data schema so they can track student's mastery of concepts and progress over time. For the more data-seasoned educators, utilizing their skills and knowledge to create their own custom data-collection applications in PowerApps. Apps that can serve multiple purposes; student assessments tailored to content and curriculum, mastery tracking, student tracking, peer assessments, classroom organization, management, and school-wide objectives and action plans. Participants will learn how Office 365's Power Platform tools of Power Bi, PowerApps, and Flow can be used to solve challenges of different sizes and scale using basic computer science skills and concepts. As a result, participants will be knowledgeable of these powerful pedagogy-transforming applications available in Office 365 and how they function. They will learn about basic data management and modeling in Power Bi. They will learn about PowerApps, a low-code readily-available application development platform that doesn't require a computer science background and runs on the device's their students already utilize. They will understand how using these tools puts them more in control of assessment and data collection design, student data collection, student data privacy, and student data management by allowing them to become the designers of the educational technology tools used in their classrooms, schools, and even at the district level. Participants will know where to find these tools in the Office 365 environment, how the tools are device agnostic, where to find the resources they need to continue learning, how to get involved in the growing educator community, and how to get started based on their ability level.
Participants will see examples of how incorporating PowerApps and Power Bi tools can impact and change previously used pedagogical strategies and routines in a classroom, as the tools allow for the creation of more efficient pedagogical assessment workflows and activities. Participants will also see first-hand examples of how PowerApps and Power Bi is used with middle school students to create motivation for concept and performance mastery, content-specific assessment activities that engage critical thinking and level four depth of knowledge, and as catalysts for personal mastery tracking, reflection, and collaborative learning projects.
